24th December 2010

No visitors on Christmas Eve prompted a brief afternoon ebb tide visit. Several Lapwings huddled around Little Eye (see right) and more were seen by Middle Hilbre and over the main island. A couple of Grey Herons continue to hunt on Hilbre; unusual to have them on the island when people are present (see below).

The elusive (and speedy!) Rabbit was at last captured 'on film' although the usual excuses (light, snow, fast moving subject etc etc) apply - apologies for the blurred image (see below left)!

Numerous tracks have been found around the islands during this cold spell and the Rabbit has obviously been roaming the island extensively looking for food.
